Two West Kelowna residents were arrested for alleged drug trafficking

RCMP executed a search warrant at a Chieftain Road home

Two people were arrested in West Kelowna Tuesday evening after the RCMP executed a search warrant at a Chieftain Road home.

The warrant was issued as part of an ongoing investigation into allegations of drug trafficking.

A 57-year-old man and a 51-year-old woman were taken into custody without incident.

During the search, police seized more than $2,000 in cash, along with undisclosed amounts of suspected methamphetamine, heroin, GHB (Gamma-hydroxybuturate) and cocaine. Other items consistent with trafficking illicit drugs were also seized inside the residence, said police.

Both men, West Kelowna residents, face potential drug-related charges and are expected to appear in court at a later date.
